of corporate representatives to rule on american laws and american regulations and tell us whether our laws and regulations are legitimate in the eyes of national corporations and they can fine u. this agreement gives us the ability to cause us taxpayers to have to pay them for the right to protect our environment and our water supply and our climate and human rights and wages and things like that. so this is absolutely outrageous. if we could go back to a system of one person, one vote, and have a real free press that enabled us to communicate and inform each other this would be a wonderful idea. unfortunately we're not there right now, so political parties in my view allow us to work together around the shared agenda. and the green party is really the one political party that is not funded by corporate money, by money that's coming from special interests. so in my way it's a way -- view it's a way for us to work together on our lives, future, education, our health and environment. host: according to the latest fcc records you received a recent installment of about $160,000, part of the ma
law reviews and look at what is being written. i look at some of the legal blogs on a pretty routine basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the cou
don't understand where that law came from, i thought a majority is anything that's above 50%, and i don't know where this 60% came from. maybe you could enlighten us on exactly the origin of that filibuster law. host: well, andy, that would take way too long for me to explain, but perhaps we'll do that as a segment on the "washington journal" and take our viewers and listeners through the intricacies of the rules of the house and senate. but thanks for your call. we're going to move on to ron on our line for democrats, calling from florida. good morning, ron. caller: good morning. host: ron, divided party -- one party or divided government? caller: well, that question is -- the underlying point is you're saying a -- in essence, what you're saying is a one-party state, and that just doesn't work. it was proved in the soviet union and the place where i immigrated from, which was cuba. the problem is, as someone said, this is not your father's republican party. when you have a new crop signing a pledge before they even take office that allows them no room to negotiate, on top of that,
frank is not a perfect law, but it the gave the government and my old agency additional powers we didn't have in 2008 to resolve to close and put through our bankruptcy-like process any large financial institution. just not an insured baj. most of the institutions getting in trouble were either not insured banks or larger banking organization of which the insured baj was a part. this limitation on authority was an impedement to have morrow bust resolution process. we have those powers now, but they need to be used and the regulators need to use them and the leadership of our government needs to say too big it to fail is over. if this happens again, bailouts are not a new paradigm and won't happen anymore. i don't hear that a lot from either candidate in this election i'm sorry to say. >> yeah. >> sheila, that's the common complaint about dodd-frank, it was watered down so much. when you look back at the process that led to the enact of dodd-frank, who are the people and what are the forces in particular to blame for that not being what it should be? >> i think as i say in my book, i th
